“Go Topless” Fishing Charters

Captain Matt has been fishing down in Mississippi his whole life. He recently just got out of the U.S. Coast Guard after serving 4 years on 2 different cutters. He obtained his captain’s license when he was 19 years old and recently upgraded it to a Masters 100 ton. His boat is a good solid boat. It is 25 feet long with a brand new 300 horsepower Yamaha pushing it. There are a few different kinds of trips you can go on and here they all are:

SHARK TRIPS: These trips involve anchoring and chumming (putting blood and guts in the water to lure them in). You’ll be fishing with either live or cut bait.

TROLLING TRIPS: These trips involve dragging lines around the islands and over wrecks. You’ll use spoons (not real spoons) which is an artificial bait. You might be able to troll by the rigs where other species are, depending how long you are out there.

INSHORE TRIPS: These involve staying around the shore and visiting the reefs that attract Speckled Trout, Redfish, and Flounder.

I have always been a fisherman. The Gulf Coast has been my home since I was about 8 years old. I grew up fishing from my rowboat with my friends down the bayou from us. I started deckhanding on charter boats when I was 13 years old. At 24 I joined the Coast Guard and completed 4 years of active duty service. After I came home from that I figured the time was right to open up my own charter fishing business.
